We love how you:
- discuss our options
- min. restrictions on movement
- min. monitoring
- sensitive, caring nurses, MDs, staff
- deliver baby to Mom's chest
- give us the 1st hour (heel prick, eye swab, vit. K shot OK; weighting, etc later)
- let Dad cut cord after pulsing stops
- do not circumcise normally

THANK YOU
